Just hours after the Jersey Flight had a win in their home opener on Friday night, the team lost one of their players. John Williams died in a car accident.
We do not know how he died in a car accident. However, Flight head coach Jake Grande confirmed the news to The Capital Sports Report early Monday morning.
We first heard that Williams died in a car accident on Sunday when his former teammate posted a tribute on his Instagram account.
Williams was a 5-foot-10, 180-pound defensive back, who attended Tabor College. He was from Ewing, N.J.
Tabor College is a four-year liberal arts college in Hillsboro, Kansas.
“John was a hard working and humble young man,” Grande said in an exclusive interview to The Capital Sports Report. “He took very well to coaching and always wanted to better himself as a player. He competed everyday and was a great teammate. We lost a special individual. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of John.”
When the Flight return to the CURE Insurance Arena on Friday, April 20th, they will do a tribute to Williams before the game. The team will also likely do a tribute to him on their helmets or jersey for the rest of the season.
